St Paul's Steiner

Your Child's Journey

Children can start their journey St Paul's from birth. Our Stay and Play groups run Monday to Thursday and Saturday mornings during term time and cater for babies and toddlers up to the age of 3 years old.

We have  four Kindergarten groups, Apple Tree, Chestnut Tree, Rosebush and Mulberry Bush, caring for children aged 3-6 years. Our Kindergarten groups run every weekday from 08:15 until 13:15. We also offer the  Orchard Group, which provides additional care and lunch for children from 13:15 until 15:30.

Children begin their formal learning when they move from Kindergarten into class one, aged six. St Paul's Steiner School currently has eight classes, nurturing children up to the age of 14 through our Lower and Middle School.

Pupils develop into confident learners, making good progress across a wide range of subjects and preparing them well for the next stage of their secondary education.
